ALBUQUERQUE, NM / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2020 / Albuquerque dentist Dr Craig Steichen announces sleep apnea, grinding teeth and snoring treatment with CPAP alternatives at his Uptown clinic https://www.craigtsteichendds.com/sleep-apnea-snoring-grinding-albuquerque
Craig T Steichen, DDS - Precision Dental Care is conveniently located at 7131 Prospect Pl NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110, United States and welcomes patients from Uptown and the surrounding areas.
Patients are often surprized when they learn how much impact a dentist can have on sleep apnea, snoring and night grinding.
Craig says ‘if people are night grinding and have chipped or worn teeth, they often come to me thinking all we will talk about is a night guard or a grinding appliance. But the more we learn about sleep apnea, the more we know that grinding is just a symptom of something more significant, you're being starved of air, so you grind your teeth to move your jaw around, to open your airway a little bit'.
Craig has a poster in every room in the clinic education patients about what is affected by sleep apnea. Depression, snoring, hormone disruption, stroke, memory loss, diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiac problems, are all affected and related.
First he looks at their health history. Second he looks in their mouth for scalloped tongue or a large tongue, sign of grinding on the teeth, bags under the eyes, signs of sleepiness or them saying they are tired all the time or that their bed partner complains of snoring. Then, patients do a take-home sleep test, and Craig adds ‘the biggest surprize to me is the amount of patients that are affected by sleep apnea'.
Previously, most sleep apnea has been dealt with by CPAP machine. Now dentistry has available many CPAP alternatives including a less intrusive device that goes in your mouth increasing the amount of quality sleep by 50% to 80%.

Craig reveals that he gets a massive kick out of these sleep apnea, night grinding and snoring treatments because ‘where once it was just, thanks Craig I love my new smile, now it's thank you for saving my life, or thank you for changing my marriage. It's been incredibly rewarding for me'.
The Albuquerque cosmetic dentist also serves Trubull Village, Nob Hill, La Mesa, South Los Altos, Del Norte, Near North Valley, Academy Acres, Victory Hills and Hodgin.
There are 151 Google reviews and one patients says ‘Dr. Steichen and his team really go above and beyond in patient quality care. It's no surprise he has invested in the latest technology: 3D X-rays machine, new cone beams and this really cool R2D2 machine that scans your mouth and now sleep apnea. Wow! He really does it all'.
